The good sides. 15/20 mins walk from the cbd, right near kings cross station. plenty of bars near by. Coles supermarket 2 mins walk down the road. wifi seems to work in most rooms, sometimes a little slow, but good overall. 3 free computers to use with fast internet in the reception area. Free breakfast everyday. free food on a Wednesday night. sturdy bunkbeds. The down sides. some rooms are small with no windows, so hot! fridges don't work. only 4 showers between the whole hostel.

Too les sinks for the amount of beds. Too noisy in the rooms, the bunkbeds shake a lot. And no curtains in windows, so you ll wake up early because of the sun.

If you can pay a bit more, go somewhere else! Too small, not even a proper common room. Not really clean. All the building seems creepy, dirty... One of the 2 big fridge was hot in it. Only one good thing: 20 min from the CBD...

You get what you pay for. One of the cheaper hostels but it was a good location with a train station up the road and easy to walk into the city/circular quay. Stayed in a private 3 bed & was tiny with 3 people's big backpacks in. the room did have air con, fridge & a tv! The whole place needs a good lick of paint and new bed sheets. The kitchen also needs to be kept on top of with the cleanliness! Nice atomosphere in the hostel though will everyone being quite friendly. Free breakfast too :)

Staff was supernice Rooms were bit small but didn't bother me. Beds and kitchen were clean which is great. Kitchen was cleaned up by the staff every day. Location was great. Right next to the king's cross station but also walking distance from the city. I've been to a more expencive places that hasn't been that good!

One of the cheapest hostels in Kings Cross when I was there. Kitchen could be bigger and have more crockery but is acceptable. Staff and cleanliness just ok. Good location

Kitchen could be a little better, nobody cleans up after themselves and the 10pm courtyard lockout rule is a bit annoying but overall my stay here was good. Staff where very friendly and helpful. Guests where quite social which made the athmosphere enjoyable. The location is great so that makes the price for chili blue very reasonable. I would stay here again

Very dirty, facilities are borderline gross, the only reason i'm giving it a 3 is because security and location were ok. the breakfast is a joke.
